Is it worth going up to Florida?

3 posts in this topic

I have not been up to my cabin this summer and it is really starting to bother me. Heard last weekend was not that great but was from not serious fisherman.

I was wondering what is really going on on the lake and if it is worth this trip.

Thanks in advance.

2000......Fishing has been starting to pick up out there....lots of pike, sunnies.....decent sized ones.....and the walleyes are starting to produce on the outside weedlines...I haven't been there since the 30th of July, but it was pickin up then and I assume it should only be getting better.....lots a luck if you make it out there..

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.

         Gentlemen, hope things go well this weekend. I, on the other hand, GET to go to St. Cloud for a surprise birthday party for my MIL. I know you all are jealous..

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.
